Insiders were quite active on the TSX yesterday. As the broad market fell about 2% on fears over Greece, insider buying surged based on TSX insider summary marker data. There were 94 stocks with buys versus only 19 with sells. That puts the ratio of stocks with buying versus stocks with selling at 4.95 to 1. The relatively high ratio indicates that insiders were indeed out in force during yesterday's sell-off looking for bargains. Marker data is collected by the TSX during each trading day. The term "marker" is used because brokers put a special "flag" beside any buy or sell order executed by insiders or significant holders on the TSX. Daily marker data is distributed by the exchange after the close. INK uses markers as a "heads up" that insider or significant shareholder trading may be taking place. We publish marker trend data daily in the Morning INK report which is distributed to INK Research subscribers.

The ratio of stocks with insider buys versus sells jumped Monday

Although markers provide timely information, they do not say who was doing the buying or selling. Investors must wait for insiders to file their trades on SEDI to see who was behind the trade.
